    summer school

    Worthington schools provides the opportunity for students to take classes during the summer in order to catch up on courses that a student has failed or to advance his/ her learning by taking classes for the first time.  All courses offered are featured on the Worthington Schools website and, for your convenience, registration will be completed online.  There is a fee associated with taking advance credit classes, but courses that students are repeating for credit recovery purposes will be offered free of charge.  (The parents of students who need to take courses through credit recovery will receive a personalized summer school registration email to be able to sign up for free.  If you cannot find the email, please contact your child's school counselor to request a new email be sent.)  Students who intend to take a course through summer school should sign up as early as possible so that you do not get closed out of a desired course.

    During the 2024 summersummer school will run from June 3 - June 27 and will be held at Worthington Academy.  Students will be in a session from 8-10 or a 10-12 time frame.  Students are asked to register ASAP to make sure you don't get closed out of a spot.  Transportation is available for free for any students who need it.

    We know that some families are unable to participate in Worthington's summer school program due to schedule and timing conflicts or because they want to register for multiple classes.  Students have the option of taking classes from any accredited school and transferring those credits back to Worthington after completion of the course.  It is important to understand that the grades from these transfer classes will be reflected on the student's transcript, however, they will not be calculated into the Worthington Schools grade point average.  Students are responsible for making sure that they provide a copy of their transcript back to WKHS so that the course can accurately be documented.  Unfortunately the counselors are unable to keep a complete list of all of the accredited schools who are offering summer school, but many local area school districts and online schools will offer summer school.  If students and parents are interested in non-Worthington summer school options, you are encouraged to search online for summer school courses to find accredited schools that will meet your needs.  The school we receive the most transcripts from each year is TRECA.  Their online registration for summer school opens in April and closes at the start of June.
